Canada’s Sim Video selects FOR-A Hanabi switcher

Sim Video, a video production rental house headquartered in Toronto, has purchased a second FOR-A Hanabi digital video production switcher for use in an HD/SD flight pack. The ability of the switcher to work in multiple formats was a key deciding factor for Sim, which provides professional broadcast equipment to production companies throughout North America.

The Hanabi HVS-3800HS is designed for both live events and multicamera production applications. Its compact 4RU frame size makes it ideal for mobile production. The switcher uses Arcnet communications to allow long cable runs between the main unit, operational unit and auxiliary remote controls. In standard configuration, the switcher offers 16 inputs, 16 outputs and six keyers; four of which have high-end chroma key capability. Optionally, users can configure the HVS-3800HS with up to 28 inputs and 23 outputs. It comes with four still stores, which can be loaded from the built-in compact flash card reader and used as inputs.

The HD/SD-compatible HVS-3800HS is the third generation of FOR-A’s Hanabi switcher series. It supports all major formats and frame rates, including NTSC, PAL, HD 1080I 50/60/24p/ 23.98SF/25/30, and 720p 50/60 among others.
